What information does ORCID store? Does ORCID store papers? Can I attach datasets and papers to my record?

ORCID is not a repository: we do not store papers or datasets. ORCID is a source of data describing the connection between a person and their research activities, outputs, affiliations, and pointers to these resources. For example, using your ORCID identifier when you submit a paper means it will be included in the published paper. That establishes a trusted digital connection between you (with your ORCID identifier) and the paper (with its DOI). That connection allows people to find your paper and all the detailed metadata in the source record.
